she used our clout with house democrats. she said as i have said don't even think about raising the medicare age. she was sort of warning boner and the president. >> it's a really bad idea on several different levels. not only would it be bad for seniors who have to pay their own premiums in the private market but it would end up driving up the costs of the insurance market for everybody else. it would drive up the cost of medicare, because that's based on a percentage of what we pay in the private insurance market and it is not going to do any cost savings overall for those people. it doesn't work financially, economically, or socially -- >> it's a serious plan! serious! >> we did a polling yesterday that said democrats -- 70% of democrats want compromise and

9:36 am
for sandy. they basically are saying do we have to do it right now? >> oh my god, they are just unbelievable. until something happens to them they have no sympathy for anybody. nancy reagan never gave a damn about stem cell research and until her husband got alzheimer's and now she is all for it. >> stephanie: yeah. that's what always bothered me as a gay woman was dick cheney was happy to run this gay-bashing campaign and now he has come out for marriage equality because of his daughter. >> wow. he wouldn't even come out for pacemaker equality until he had heart trouble.
9:37 am
>> stephanie: you are funny. you should have a show that you can say anything. >> one thing about current, people can't find it so you can say anything. >> stephanie: people are finding it. >> yes. >> stephanie: your show is great. >> thank you we do the best we can. we had ti the other night. >> we have no idea. >> that's quite a cross section. >> stephanie: we don't get such highbrow guests here in the mornings. what do you feel about this fiscal cliff thing? >> it's boring at this point. it's just jump around. they are going to get it done aren't they? i can't do three months on the fiscal cliff.

9:39 am
i would love if that blew up in their face too. >> that would be fun. it's fun to watch them go down on the titanic, isn't it. i don't want to gloat, but -- >> stephanie: yes, you are so soft-spoken on "the view." >> i have calmed down a little bit, because it doesn't pay to argue with elizabeth anymore. it's too exhausting. i can't. i have too many things to do. i have gifts to wrap. i can't. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: exactly. we have been doing kind of an extended gloatfest, i have to admit. >> you have. so this is preaching to the choir, right? >> stephanie: yes, but we don't care. >> i sured to have a show on wabc where i preceded rush limbaugh and the audience was
9:40 am
filled with right-wing zealot nut cases. it was like date rape every day with these people. i really like your position very important, you liberal bitch! >> stephanie: right. >> it was like date rape. you trust the guy, come on now. let's get it on. and then he turns on you. >> stephanie: you would have thought as a female host you would have had a way of shutting that whole thing down.

9:42 am
oh by the way, greg writes about reince preibus, gym! >> reinholt reince prebus! [ dog barking ] >> i never thought we would use that sound bite. >> stephanie: they want more debates next time because it makes their candidates look really bad -- >> because we look bad when people here about our ideas. >> stephanie: greg says for jim, now know who else wanted less debates? >> hitler.

9:43 am
what is up? >> caller: would the premium be for medicare if we all paid it out of our pocket? >> it would be much higher than what you pay now because medicare is regulated in a way that the private insurance market isn't regulated. so it's a percentage of what the private insurance market pays. people complain that medicare rates for doctors, for example are too low, but it's actually that the private insurance payments are too high. they have overinflated what things cost and that's why doctors complain that medicare -- medicare is actually spot on. you would end up paying significantly more out of pocket, because people have more ailments obviously -- >> caller: but the fact that they made part d non-competitive. they have to pay whatever the pharmacy is charging. has anybody done a study to find out what the premium would be if
9:44 am
it matches up with how high the premiums would be in the private market? >> there is an organization called and the kaiser foundation also has some really good comparisons. >> caller: i was just thinking it would be a great way to offer, a, quote unquote people could buy into medicare instead of buying into private insurance. oh medicare for all. it would be tremendously less expensive. because we could negotiate the rates -- >> stephanie: and that's why the republicans would never go for it -- >> yeah medicare is much more efficient than private insurance because it doesn't have shareholders. >> stephanie: who wants that?
9:45 am
we'll be right back -- that was a delightful little jacki schechner health care corner. right back on the i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

10:33 am
the ten-year hiatus that they have had in making a real contribution. and i think that's a really wide wide goal. >> stephanie: representative moore, you can looking at the same polls we are, and it seems like they are getting worse for republicans. 75% of americans want the wealthier americans to pay their fair share and they don't want medicare or social security touched. >> exactly. >> stephanie: who are they fighting for at this point? >> well i can tell you that the very rich and powerful have sent out various threats to the gop, you know, that if you don't do our bidding, we're not going to fund your campaigns; that we want, you know government spending to yield to our
10:34 am
corporatist interests, and, you know, take for example this demand from speaker boehner, that we do $800 billion in cuts in the social safety net. i mean that's coming straight from -- from corporate america. i mean they want to change the social security, cut $200 billion out of that. they want to cut $600 billion out of medicare by raising the medicare eligibility age to 67. this is what they campaigned on romney and paul ryan and they want to win by negotiation kiosk. they don't care that this is unpopular with the public. >> stephanie: right. their masters have said that this is the demand that we want
10:35 am
to make. our counterproposal is sure we would love to change medicare but what we want to do is for example negotiate drug costs with the drug companies. that would give us at least 300, $400 billion over ten years. so we want to take it away from the very wealthy pharmaceutical companies, and they are saying no, you got to get this out of social security and benefits. so that's the difference. >> stephanie: yeah and i'm looking like i say this is not even just polling. it is non-partisan. the republicans screamed about this report so they redid it and it reached the same conclusion. >> exactly. >> stephanie: over the past 65 years the reduction in top tax rates has had little association with savingser our productivity growth. and this puts a steak in the
10:36 am
heart of the republican argument that it somehow curves economic growth. >> well stephanie, the whole notion of the job creators, we can't hurt the job creators by taking money away from them. the point is they are not hiring because of these taxes. you get every single penny that you spend on payroll is deductible. duh! every single penny that you spend on renting, leasing, buying space is deductible. >> stephanie: right. >> from your income no matter how you are filing. so that's ludicrous that somehow rewarding income above $250,000 you know, somehow creates jobs. we know who creates jobs the struggling brand new entrepreneurs who are bringing new people on and the president
10:37 am
has provided 18 different tax cuts for small businesses. you know we need to target help to small businesses more accurately instead of this fantasy -- >> stephanie: yep. >> -- as you might characterize it, that somehow if we provide tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, we'll just magically help. >> stephanie: you have no idea how much the mocking tone of your voice is appreciated on this show. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: representative before you go, wanted to get your take we have been talking about susan rice withdrawing. i just thought it was disgraceful that this accomplished woman became a political target of the republicans for no good reason and now has lost the opportunity to serve as secretary of state. >> oh stephanie, there is so much to be said about that.
10:38 am
when you talk about raw politics this is it. i think that they think they have a shot at that senate state if john kerry were appointed -- >> stephanie: yeah someone's career has to be sacrificed for pure partisan politics. it really is a sad day, i think. >> i think so too. republicans do much better in specht elections. money goes a lot further. the coalition that took president obama and elizabeth warren, quite frankly to the top may not turn out in a special election and they are banking on -- on -- as close as it was -- it was much closer than romney and obama in massachusetts -- >> >> stephanie: right. and that's what they count on is less turnout, trying to suppress the vote. >> that's right.
10:39 am
so the thing of it is is we need to really hone in on educating the voters in massachusetts. all hands on deck for this special election if in fact he does appoint john kerry. but in the short run they have won. in the long run, you know, it's incumbent upon us to make sure they are tone deaf. they still haven't heard the message, which is hey, you are kicking around another woman, this war on women continues. you have thrown her out for no reason, war on people of color. this is the coalition that will keep you out of power from now on. >> stephanie: yeah. >> and once again here is a woman who did absolutely nothing. >> stephanie: yep. >> and, you know, you pulled together this minority voice -- >> poor mccain.
